  1. Dear friends, we are really sorry this message is released later then we hoped. We are excited to announce that the Aerosoft CRJ 550/700 for the Microsoft Flight Simulator will be released on Tuesday March 16, 2021 as the first complex and highly detailed aircraft expansion. The expansion will be available as a download from the Aerosoft Shop and the Microsoft Flight Simulator Marketplace at the same time.

  2. Update from the previous post Stefan just did some quick test. Now settings and hardware do not really play a role as it is the comparison that counts. CRJ, fully loaded on runway: 45 FPS Default Airbus, fully loaded on runway: 52 fps Now I have the idea that internal memory is important. We have all 32 Gb or more. MFS loves memory. But all in al, we are not afraid of the performance. Interestingly enough the texture load of the CRJ is 12% less then the default Airbus. Now, okay, a larger aircraft, but still. For people with a graphics card with a moderate am

  3. Proof is the pudding. Just check the vids https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/forum/1061-come-fly-with-me-by-the-dude/. If you believe this is not complex enough for you, just wait. For me it is. Keep in mind that what you read might have a reason. Development teams that did not jump on MFS and now are late, development teams that were refused access to MFS channels etc. For our internal aircraft development we made a very clear decision, while we still update P3D projects (like the busses with CPDLC) our focus is on MFS. Everybody makes his own choices and just as I am pushing M

  5. I just had a skype chat with a friend. he is a long time customer, flies PMDG737 most of the time. I found his comments so intriguing I asked if I could post them, he said yes. Mathijs: I am sorry, I do not understand what you mean. You must have 500 hours on the PMDG 737 on IVAO, why would you think the CRJ is too complex for you? It is a less complex aircraft (more demanding to fly, but technically less complex). myfriend: make that 616hours! And yes, I know the CRJ has less automation and I love that, a pilot is a guy with his hands on the controls, not a button pus

  8. Well, let me tell you we are going offline after one of the most stressfull days in a long time. Both Vanessa and I am seriously sorry it took so long. Originally it was planned for for 09:00 local and we were both up and ready a long time before that. But spanners kept being thrown in the cogs. This was not what we had in mind. But when life throws you lemons you pick March 16th.

  10. And here it comes.... Long time ago, our first release of the F-16. Now I grew up in an air-force family. My father was the guy who was in charge of getting the F-16's integrated in the Dutch Air-Force. As he was a fighter pilot himself he said he ABSOLUTELY needed to know what the aircraft was before he could do that. So he was one of the oldest guys ever to be in the US to qualify. Needless to say he knew what he was talking about. So he helped me a lot when we did that project. When it came to sounds we asked him to carry a small mike in his helmet so we could get t

  13. As I got nothing to say about the CRJ, let me bore you with an Interstate Race story..... We are talking a long time ago. A loooong time ago. There were options to connect sims together via serial port (RS232 for people that are seriously old). There was no internet. Only BBS's. And Compuserve (some day I will tell you I was banned from Compuserve because I forgot the add a 'f' to a single word'.). The device looked something like this but 5 times bigger. And clearly it had not USB ports as USB was no yet invented. So we had 8 teams for an I

One thing i will never ever do again is ask people on the internet to look for mistakes in my videos But hey, we did find something to do until 21:00 CET apart from talking about APU ops and delayed announcements, now didn't we Just to come back to the subject of the APU being ON until FL100. Back in the day when CRJ 100-200's were more common this was a standard SOP for many airlines. Nowadays we have more 7/9/1K CRJs and with the fuel prices being what they are APU OFF after engine start is the way to go. The tutorial will let you shu

  15. Just to be clear, we believe we have a very good soundset, internal and external and using the very latest methods. But the simple fact is that 99% of customers have never been on the flight deck of a CRJ and still have an expectation of how it sounds. Just as almost all customers believe that on the flight deck of a A380 you hear the flaps move. If you do not add it you will see it mentioned in reviews and it hurts sales. Examples everywhere. We still see reviews of our Airbusses that have as minus points that the engine keep running if the fuel pumps are off even though we expl

  16. Your weekly dose of Twin Otter pictures! JaeEon is closing up the work on the standard wheel model and soon starts on the other models (floats etc). Note how he experiments with the top layer of the textures on the wings (the 'clearcoat') to create a less uniform color. Anne is hard at work on the seats and the cabin. We'll make two cabins, one with seats and one cargo.

  17. To make the waiting a bit less boring we came up with a little contest. In my next video I made two "mistakes" on purpose. It is up to you to spot these two mistakes and the first two persons that get one right will get a free CRJ. The rules are simple; everybody has one chance to answer and it may only be one answer, even if you spot both two mistakes. You may only submit one of the mistakes you see. Answer both and you are disqualified Because I made this video in one take I made some "honest" mistakes and these do not count. When I say we will read the TAXI checklist I read th

  19. As a RW CRJ Captain, I respectfully disagree! Airlines have differing policies about this, but in all the workplaces I know of, cabin crew begin their duties after exiting sterile flight deck at 10,000 feet. This is unless they are explicitly told not to by the captain in anticipation of rough air. There are a few reasons for this, one being that they are far more skilled at standing through turbulence than your average passenger. In addition, if you turn off the seatbelt sign as the cabin crew begins service, you’re creating a problem (especially in the 700/550) by allowing pax to stand in th

  20. My only problem is I was being inconsiderate of others. I was taking my bad day out on the forums. That was foolish of me. I saw a coupld of post of pouty people and just snapped instead of closing the browser and walking away. Sometimes I am trash. I get that a lot on vatsim. lost 400 lbs of fuel at the ramp and facing all kinds of trouble for that. Anyway, thats my problem. I brought it here and I shouldn't have.

  24. No, I think that price for that goes to MFS itself. Dealing with the boxed release of that was incredibly complex and stressful. This was at the height of Corona panic, with printshops closed, everybody still getting used to working from home etc. And we had to have hundreds of thousands of DVD pressed. get them shipped etc. But this one is not far off from the boxed releases we did of X-Plane. Those are also massive releases with huge contracts with stores etc. Technically however this CRJ release is in my mind not so complex, it is more all the things that come with something so

  25. Interested to continue this CRJ community...? Read below. Not sure about all of you, but I have been enjoying the many insights that have been shared on this forum related to the highly anticipated CRJ. Would love to see this community continue to stick together and to expand. Initially was thinking about setting up a Discord server where we could build the community, setup a range of topics/subgroups etc. but after given it some more consideration and after some exchanges with Aerosoft folks (for the record I am not associated in any way with Aerosoft) we thought it would be bette

  36. “Advisory” VNAV is a system where the FMS calculates a descent profile to meet crossing restrictions of a STAR, and “advises” the pilot of the path to fly with a cue on the PFD. This cue looks like a white asterisk symbol, and appears in the same location that the glideslope diamond would be on an ILS approach. However, unlike an ILS, the autopilot will not automatically fly the descent profile - the pilot first has to dial in a lower altitude on the autopilot, and when the aircraft arrives at the Top Of Decent point (TOD), the pilot has to manually initiate descent - typically with vertical s

  37. This is a question that can only get a highly subjective answer. I have flown the RW CRJ with the worse headset there is and with the best headset (Bose) there is. The experience between the two would make you think you were flying another aircraft. IRL we pilots like the cockpit the best that is also the quietest. Why? Because we sit and work there for hours and hours. As already stated by others here; you really do not hear the engines that much IRL. They are not Merlin engines with that beautiful sound. They are not GE90s which you will hear starting up from miles away. They are

  42. That said, you now have to do it as a real pilot, they can't 'automatically' import flight plans on the CRJ. You can however store the flightplans so if you fly the same route you can recall it. Just as in the real CDU. So put the fligthplan created in the correct folder and it can be inserted. Insert the name of the flight plan in the route field and execute. And here is the flightplan file. They should be in the work folder: Steam version: C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Packages\aerosoft-crj\work MS Store (b
